Donny McCaslin Group: Live At 92Y Tribeca
Tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin has long been known as an exceptional jazz soloist — in Dave Douglas' quintet, the Maria Schneider Orchestra or most of his own previous bands. But he went on an electric bender with 2011's Perpetual Motion, a funk- and groove-heavy disc featuring electric piano and bass guitar. With another recording in the works, he shows no signs of unplugging any time soon.
Full of dubby bass and space-age synthesizers, the Donny McCaslin Group performed in a double bill with Adam Rogers' Dice Trio at 92Y Tribeca in downtown New York City. The concert was broadcast on air via WBGO and in an online video webcast at this page on NPR Music. For more information about this series and a full concert archive, visit npr.org/checkoutlive.
